Telly Savalas on one of Bob Hope’s specials from 1976, first exchanging banter, then singing a duet, if you can believe it.
I find it amusing that apparently whatever version of teleprompter they’re using must have been down at the stage level, since as they’re exchanging jokes they’re both looking down.
If you want more of Telly singing, you can find it at Classic Television Showbiz.
Yes, I know, the video quality is for shit but just trust me.
Update: Sadly, this clip has been taken down. If anybody finds Carl again, please let me know.
For those who read Tuffley’s guide to the strike and wanted to know quite specifically where their favorite television shows stand and how many episodes there are left until they shut down completely, Brent Evans has provided a show-by-show, blow-by-blow guide that will help you out.
Thanks to Ken for the headsup.
Around here, we dig Matt Frewer. So anything that gets him a paycheck, we’re good with. It’s a bonus when the thing in question is a rather amusing return to Max Headroom to warn viewers in the UK that Channel 4 (where Headroom got his start) is going all-digital. Nicely done.

This is a long distance dedication to all of you young bastards who never understood why I would say “Hey good lookin’, we’ll be back to pick you up later!” into random microphones.
And let’s cogitate upon that for the briefest of moments. You are “good lookin'” but not good enough to actually stop the vehicle and pick the “you” in question up immediately. You are “good lookin'” enough for later, however. And is the “you” in question supposed to simply wait there–and if so, for how long?
Or perhaps the car simply has no brakes. We may never know.
If anyone asks me what a “long distance dedication” is, there will be death.
I had no idea this had happened until Ken just sent me this, but that figures: it was broadcast this year in Canada, it’s now available on DVD in Canada and I myself am not in Canada. So.
Come on, our friends to the North. Bob and Doug are an international treasure that must be shared. Do a complete Region 1 release at least. I mean, seriously.
